I was so excited to recently find your website. It is amazing. I also teach third grade and use Reader's and Writer's workshop, Words Their Way and The Cafe. So as you can imagine your sight was a gold mine for me!
Thank you for your blog on writing the lead posters were awesome!
I actually have a reading question for you. I have been using Reader's workshop for about 6 years. I am still trying to get better at strategy groups. Specifically, I feel a bit overwhelmed about what to teach and how long to teach a skill and how to assess and decide if I need to move on. I realize this is a huge questions. But any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. (I did read a little about it in your reading assessment post and already ordered the book you recommended.) Thank you for all you tips and advice!
